So sad to hear of Greg's passing. I feel honored to have several of his artworks hanging in my home. An amazing and talented man and an excellent mentor as I became an adult. He will be missed.

Greg was one of the most talented and intelligent individuals I have ever known. I was in grade school with him at Holy Cross and we used to walk home together. By seventh grade, he had already written a book!! He was a fantastic artist and musician.. and a good karate teacher.
